Tuesday Lift Up!

Check my Pinterest Board Tuesday Lift Up!
What's so fabulous about Tuesdays?

Well, it is the day when we get new Weekly Deals on my Stampin'Up store! We also usually start most good deals on Tuesdays (don't miss the great new below!). So I will call my Tuesdays a good day to lift others up!

Let's start this day with a famous quote:
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works... encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near," Hebrews 10:24-25

What a wonderful Bible verse. Consider... how…encouraging…let's do that today. What are some ways we can stir others up to love and do good works. Oooh, have you heard of RAK…random acts of kindness.

Why not try that today?

Make a little something or grab an extra cup of coffee for a stranger when u get one this morning, or offer gum to your coworker when you get one out of your purse. Simple…keep it simple. What about making a card that lifts someone else up today. I will share more great quotes for you to have not only a fab Tuesday but a fabulous week.

Giving makes a difference
Focus on giving today a bit more of you. What about pointing out how awesome you think someone is? Do it! I JUST thought of someone I will mail a card to today. My friend Jana (from Trot Fitness!). Every time I go to do my Boot camp training -Oh have mercy! is Hard but Im there about 3 times a week, well I try!- she is ALWAYS there. She is not only inspiring (she lost a bunch of weight, does the challenges and works out like a maniac). She is also an amazing mom of 4 little ones AND she loves helping others. Every time I talk with her she tells me what she was doing the day before. She loves to help. Helping someone move, helping someone with a task, helping someone pack..ugh! I think she is truly amazing. I will let her know today that she is awesome! 

Here is my RAK…mailing a card to a friend I have NEVER send a card before to tell her she is awesome.

Colors: Delightfully Dijon, Whisper White, 


Gotta love the cute envelope made with Garden in Bloom- coordinates with the DSP.

Other ways to Lift Others Up
What about these other options?

* take the phone, call someone you haven't talk in forever and simply tell them you were thinking of them. Then tell them you think they are unique.

* Send your pastor or cell group leader, or homeschool group coordinator a text message telling them WHY you think they matter.
* Grab a chocolate bar at the store, stick a post-it note on top and write "You deserve it!" or "You are sweet". 

Make it loud!
I am sure there is many other ways to lift others up….could you share them below. If you try one of these or other ideas today, could you come back and share them? I would love to hear you yell!

Don't miss the new Clearance Items

They will only be available till they last. The same with the weekly deals. It starts today TUESDAY. Check the weekly deals and MAKE SURE you hop to my store to see the Clearance Rack. Yay! Have fun making a difference. It is Tuesday Lift Up! I assure you, you will feel stronger and refreshed when you lift another up.

SIMPLE SCRAPS Monday: Week 1

Hello my dear stampers,

I would like to share with you fun ways to use your scraps. We all have them and many times we either forget them and don't know how to use it. So try it! Go get your scraps out!

My tip for you today is: 
Use your scraps!
Your scraps of pretty paper.
Check out what I created yesterday with some scraps from beautiful Designer Series Paper. 

Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Real Red (butterfly)
DSP: retired; Punch: Bitty Butterfly



What inspired me?
I found a great sketch I thought I could use. Here it is! 
Retrosketches #170. Thank you for your inspiration!

I made a different style too. I picked scraps from my scraps basket. I try to divide them in cello bags or ziplock bags with the same type. I checked the sizes I already had and started creating a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card scored in the middle.


Stamp set: Banner Banter
Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Early Expresso (dark brown)
DSP: retired; Punch: Banner


Very different takes but I was inspired for both with the sketch you saw above. Be grateful today for what you have. 
Use your scraps! Come back next Monday for more inspiration with scraps. :)


Do you have scraps you can turn into blessings?  
If this inspired you in any way, O please share your scraps below (share your link to your blog post or message me….yes!)

Learning and sharing...

As I learn new methods of guiding my children 
and they teach me to enjoy life.
As I learn how to organize enough 
without squeezing spontaneity out the door.
As I learn how in the world to multi-task 
and still stay pleasant.
I will share a few samples from a swap that inspired me to get some new stamps and bless some. 

This is one of my favorite new birthday stamps in the catalog.


Absolutely precious. I received these cards as an exchange from other amazing demonstrators on a business team I am part of. I will post their creators as soon I can sit on my computer again.


You've got this comes with a flower image and 3 very needed and lovely sentiments.How many times I need to hear "You've got this". Life has too many challenges.
How amazing to also hear "Good things are going to happen". That's great!

Last but not the least! DID YOU ALREADY NOTICED?
The new In Colors are precious. In all this cards you can see the Watermelon Wonder. Some of my stampers call it coral, others pink, others calypso…ha!


You never know how much you need to hear these words TILL you get them on the mail. My friend and demonstrator Pam Steckman from Florida sent me a beautiful acrd with this set the other day. WAO! I felt soooo special! "A friend every wishes they had"….wao, no words. I will take a picture and show it to you tomorrow. Okis!


Love you all…..never stop doing what you love.
When you express your talents to bless others, you yourself are blessed.
